    William, it may be hard to imagine for you, but we do have satellite-dishes here in Switzer- land.... Bingo !!!! Which means, we got CNN International and CNN Usa, and Fox News, and CBS, and NBC, and C-span. Apart from that, I am spending each year a few weeks in the States, so don't worry, I know pretty much what's up. And of course, the U.S. networks were reporting the clashes in Gaza, it was internal fighting, no Israeli troops involved. But even you have to conceed, that there is a strange silence, at least when it comes to Fox News and CNN USA, when Palestinian civilians get killed by IDF rockets, which stands in sharp contrast to the reporting when Israelis get hurt by Palestinian militants. Don't worry, I don't believe in the "all media in the hands of the Jews" BS, but I still would like to get an explanation for that phenomena. Maybe the American people can't stand to see Palestinian blood caused by Israeli soldiers...???
